Assessment Appeals

Attorney Ogden handles assessment appeals and successfully sued the York County Board of Assessment Appeals over an illegal spot assessment. Attorney Ogden's client purchased a home in York County and shortly thereafter his property was reassessed. Attorney Ogden filed suit challenging the Board of Assessment Appeals decision to "correct the assessment" of the client's property thereby raising the amount of taxes he paid. The Court held that Board improperly approved increased assessment on taxpayer's property thereby subjecting taxpayer to impermissible spot reassessment.
